Been away from LQO for a bit, other priorities in life, job career etc. Now back at the computer tinkering stage, job for life as an A&E Consultant (as in Emergency/hospital) secured (?) thank God!
I've bought a Sun Netra T1 to play with (plus a spare), plan is to set it up as my LAN DNS/www/mail/ftp server, then move it to being an internet server when I move house (current ADSL is no servers and dynamic, when I move, I am getting static). I might even co-locate it if I get a good enough deal (did an eBay sale to the tech manager of a suitable ISP, so maybe mates rates are on!).
What I need to know is where to start, I've been reading the Linux www/dns/ftp howtos, and considering what I should start with (I guess the DNS), but being a medical Doctor, I'm not a Computer expert really. I would like to do something a bit like finegans clock
(got some cracking names lined up!), but not really knowing where to start makes it a bit harder!
I'd appreciate any general advice, particularly from anyone who has setup this sort of thing. I'm looking to do dns, mail/www for myself and a few others, online picture archive. Ideally a vpn with my /home available to me at my work ip (if it's fixed) or via ftp.
If Finegan reads this, advice much appreciated, I think I have your email, but these things are best done in a forum so someone else can do it too!! Posted in the solaris forum, as I'm going to do it with Solaris on a Netra, could always be done with one of my other machines, so comments from all *NIX users welcome!!
